Well I object, vociferously. Contrary to what others post, the ffmpeg
doc, and the web site, do *not* relegate windows to the rank of
second-rate platform. Only compiling ffmpeg itself with MSVC is not
Creating such a list, will have the obvious direct consequence that the
other lists will just flame "OT! Go to ffmpeg-wincrap!", and the less
direct but just as obvious consequence that mingw builds will probably
be broken 95% of the time. Windows *will* be hopeless as a platform for
ffmpeg. That is a drastic change in development policies and I dont
think it should be done that lightly.
